Auburn University Proposal – Ty & Blakeley

Saturday morning, sweet Blakeley was planning to meet her Big at Big Blue Bagel in Downtown Auburn, little did she know, she would finish the morning with a ring on her finger! Ty called me planning an exciting proposal in front of Samford Hall the morning of the Mississippi State-Auburn football game. Unfortunately, Samford is undergoing quite a bit of extensive renovation right now, so we did some talking and decided upon the new Toomer’s Corner gateway into Auburn. It turned into the perfect spot!

I loved Ty’s beautiful setup for the proposal – especially the vintage suitcases!

Ty had even arranged for their friends and family to hide across the street in front of Ware Jeweler’s.

After meeting at Big Blue, Blakeley’s Big gave her a box from Ty. It had instructions for where to meet him – just down the street at Toomer’s Corner! Fortunately, we could see Blakeley make her way from Big Blue.

Ty wasted no time in getting down on one knee and asking the big question…

Of course, she said yes!

Thank you, Ty and Blakeley, for allowing me to be a part of this special moment for the two of you! Best wishes as you begin planning the rest of your lives together. War Eagle!
